The main aim of this study was to determine the spatial variability in rainfall depth and maximum intensity, as well as variability of derived parameters within a small test site with 13 measuring stations, in southern Germany. Results and discussion about spatial trends in rainfall depth, intensity, erosivity, and predicted runoff. It is concluded that sub-kilometre scale differences are highly relevant for environmental processes acting on short-time scales like flooding or erosion. They should be considered during establishing, validating and application of any event-based runoff or erosion model
